The son of celebrity songwriter Arthur Schwartz reflects on his childhood pride in his father's profession.
My father told the story for years. Jonno kept that Victrola from the age of 3 until we left California for good in 1947. Six years without breaking it or breaking one single record. When he was little, he'd applaud after every song, like the audience.
The audience in the tree, he audience in other people's houses, the audience rather than a student at school, and what an audience for the music!
